CBS is getting its day in court to get a temporary restraining order that would stop the June 18 premiere of ABC’s Glass House. Judge Gary Feess today set a hearing for first thing Friday morning for the networks’ lawyers to plead their case before him. The judge could make a ruling at the time to stop production on the ABC show and prevent the premiere from airing. This comes one day after CBS responded to ABC’s opposition on Monday to the TRO request that CBS filed last week. The two networks have engaged in a series of legal shots since CBS sued ABC over Glass House on May 10. CBS says Glass House is a blatant rip-off of its Big Brother, a claim ABC rejects. The announcement of the TRO hearing comes the same day CBS asked ABC to turn over hundreds of pages of documents, emails and even tweets on Glass House as part of the ongoing discovery process (read that request here). CBS is represented by Scott Edelman, Michael Seitz, Theane Evangelis Kapur and Blaine Evanson of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. ABC is represented by Glenn Pomerantz, Jonathan Altman and Carolyn Hoecker Luedtke of Munger, Tolles & Olson.
